sounds like the steering box is hooped.

disconnect the steering arm and try turnin the wheel if it still does it then the box is junk.

yeah if its u joints it would tend to do the same thing in either direction........could be water in pump....if so the pump is probably fucked..ford so sensitive.....more likley the box,,, i agree ...remove the drag link and cycle the box...this should give you somr indication...or at least jack the front wheels off the ground and cycle the sreering...see what you see....good luck
